Four NHL playoff games are scheduled for Saturday and our hockey expert has identified the three best bets of the day and included them in a three-team mega parlay. Be sure to check out our picks for all four of Saturday’s NHL matchups as well.

But right now, let’s break down our three-team mega parlay:

Florida Panthers (+125)

Toronto Maple Leafs (-170)

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+210)

Parlay odds: +1008

Florida Panthers over Tampa Bay Lightning (+125)

The Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning put on another entertaining performance for the state of Florida on Thursday night as the Panthers topped the Lightning 6-5 in overtime. It was another thrilling hockey contest as the Panthers blew a two-goal first-period lead only to come back from a two-goal deficit in the third period to force overtime. Ryan Lomberg got the game winner in overtime, which shows you just about everyone is scoring goals in this series. The Panthers put up 47 shots against the Lightning while holding them to just 31 shots against. The Lightning defense does not seem to be on the same level of play that we saw in last year’s playoffs. Jonathan Huberdeau picked up three assists for his second three-point performance of the series. Sergei Bobrovsky came into the game to start the third period and stopped all nine shots he faced. Look for the Panthers to go back to Bobrovsky to help them get the win on Saturday. With not much separating these teams +125 for the road Panthers is great value.

Toronto Maple Leafs over Montreal Canadiens (-170)

The Montreal Canadiens doubled up the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 on Thursday night to take the first game of the series and put some pressure on the Maple Leafs. Unfortunately for Toronto that wasn’t the worst news of the night as Captain John Tavares had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher after an unfortunate collision. The Leafs couldn’t produce their best effort after the incident and ultimately fell to the Canadiens. With their backs against the wall look for the Leafs to bounce back with a strong performance to even up the series. They have now heard some positive news about the recovery of Tavares and should be able to refocus their energy on getting him a win tonight. The Leafs were the far superior team in the regular season and even took seven of ten head-to-head matchups against the Canadiens. Without Tavares in the lineup for this one look for Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews to do the heavy lifting offensively.

Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 over Minnesota Wild (+210)

After losing the first period 2-0 on Thursday the Vegas Golden Knights completely dominated the last 40 minutes of play, scoring five unanswered goals to beat the Wild 5-2 on Thursday. Vegas outshot the Wild 22-5 in the second period and followed it up by outshooting them 14-4 in the third. The Wild had absolutely no answer on how to come back against the defensive juggernaut Knights. After Vegas played an incredibly poor first period in Game 3 you can be certain that their focus in this one will be getting off to a better start. If Vegas can get the lead early this may be another long night for the Wild. The scoring chances for the Wild will be few and far between and the chances they do get will have to get by veteran Marc-Andre Fleury. Fleury has been sensational all season and his numbers have improved in the playoffs. Through the first three games he has a .951 SV% and a 1.32 GAA. Take the Knights to win -1.5 as they hold the Wild to two goals or less for the fourth straight time.
